Character Details

Harmon was born and raised to a fairly normal life. Good parents, normal schools, normal angst. Whenever he turned 15, however, his mutation surfaced and gave a whole new level of 'interesting' to his life. This was 6 years ago.
It didn't take long to figure out that he absorbed electricity from things around him with an enhanced 'pull'. Cell-phones, computers, lights, etc were susceptible in general and would be quickly drained and/or fried by direct physical contact. He started wearing gloves to help prevent it, got labeled a freak and weird because of the odd things that would sometimes happen around him in school and college. In spite of his 'handicap' towards things requiring electricity he was a Generation Xer and loved his technology. With time and preparation he started to live a normal life to some degree in college, studying electrical engineering primarily.
While in college he had an accident -- No gloves, direct contact with the power-grid through heavy-gauge, heavy-duty wiring. Unable to expend the electricity faster than he could absorb it and unable to get away from the current he suffered some mild electrocution -- Realizing the danger posed by his power to himself for the first time. He began trying to learn to truly control his ability then. This was 1 year ago.
Dropping out of college with barely more than a semester to go Harmon disappears off the grid. He knows what he is, doesn't appear to want help or just does not understand how to get it. He lives as a drifter, fading into obscurity and living from town to town doing mostly manual labor. It's at this point he joins the universe as a whole
